Welcome to Your 28 Days Skin Fitness & Detox Programme for a healthy, radiant skin!

Spring and autumn are the two most transitional seasons of the year, this is the time when your skin needs additional support. Complete Your Spring Skin Fitness & Detox 28 Day Programme, for radiant, healthy, nourished, even toned and refined skin. Conscious ‘me time’ and extra skin care.

1) Day 1 of Your Programme begin with a early evening cleanse, then Clarifying Steam Bath and Clarifying Clay Mask followed by Cream Mask application. You’ll do this once a week, so choose a night for it, we like Sunday night.

Every Day – Morning

1) Drink warm water and lemon juice first thing upon waking in the morning and do this every morning. If it’s going to be easier then juice a pile of lemons, put the juice in ice blocks and freeze. Take one block out each night and place in a cup, so you’re ready for the morning. We need to make this habit quick and easy. Aids the body in a clear skin, flushing out toxins, jump starts the digestive tract, aids the liver in its cleansing processes and increases detoxification.

2) Use 5 drops of Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence in your basin cleansing water. We recommend Compress & Hydration + Press & Roll, at the basin, rather than cleansing in your morning shower.

Why do we promote ‘Compress & Hydrate’? 
a) Warming your skin first softens your pores to ensure a much deeper cleanse
b) You will use your cleansing products much more economically
c) Complete by splashing or compressing with cool water after cleansing to activates a minute muscle beside the hair follicle, contraction helps to remove any last remaining dirt
d) Your skin will feel so much softer without the need for harsh exfoliation
e) Check out our Compress & Hydrate + Press & Roll video

We want you to get the best results!

3) Cleansing Cream – ‘press & roll’ technique.

4) Facial Toner or Clarifying Toner – close eyes and mist onto the skin, 3 pumps should do.

5) Day Care – all are highly concentrated so should always be warmed between the palms of the hands and applied to skin still moist from Toner. This ensures even and economical application.

Clarifying Day Oil – to balance and regulate an oily/blemished skin
Melissa Day Cream – for sensitive combination (oily t-zone, dry/normal cheeks) skin
Rose Day Cream Light – for normal or sensitive skin, usually recommended for a younger skin, up to around 35.
Rose Day Cream – rich and highly protective for normal, dry, sensitive, mature skin
Quince Day Cream – cooling, soothing and protective for normal skin or sensitive skin
Tinted Day Cream – tinted moisturiser for normal, dry, sensitive or mature skin
Revitalising Day Cream – for aiding sebaceous activity and guiding skin to a balanced state in a normal, dry, mature/pallid skin
Regenerating Serum & Regenerating Day Cream – specific support for firming a maturing skin

Dr. Hauschka Skin Care; Dr. Hauschka Kosmetik

Every Day – Evening

1) ‘Compress and Hydrate’ skin to soften the pores in readiness for cleansing. Use 5 drops of Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence in the water
2) Soothing Cleansing Milk
3) Apply Renewing Night Conditioner or Sensitive Care Conditioner ampoule.

This is your weekly routine, so repeat until you reach your 28th evening. By which time your skin will be deeply cleansed, nourished, more even toned, soft, radiant and healthy!

Great skin care is about using the highest quality natural and organic products. Eat fresh, nutritious food, drink 6-8 glasses of water daily, 8 hours sleep and put measures in place if you’re stressed – a state of relaxation, happiness and laughter is good for your skin. A 30 minute daily walk in the fresh air is good for your body, mind and soul, in nature if you can.

Mixing Clarifying Clay Mask with water in readiness for application

For those that need it here’s step by step instructions on how to do a Clarifying Steam BathClarifying Clay Mask and Cream Mask for Day 1 which will be repeated once a week during the programme, alternatively there’s full instructions in your product box:

1. Compress and hydrate your skin, cleanse with Soothing Cleansing Milk, remove with the warm, moist Dr. Hauschka Compress Cloth.
2. Place 1 heaped teaspoon of Clarifying Clay Mask in a small container in readiness.
3. Dilute two teaspoons of Clarifying Steam Bath with ½ litre (500ml) of steaming water in a large bowl. Lean over the bowl, covering the head with towel, and steam for 5-10 minutes. Follow with Clarifying Clay Mask application.

Please note: If you don’t wish to steam, then you may do this step with Clarifying Steam Bath and ‘Compress and Hydrate’ instead.

4. While your skin is still warm and moist mix 2 to 2 1/2 teaspoons of water (I use the Clarifying Steam Bath water) to the Clarifying Clay Mask in the small container. The consistency you want is spreadable, not too thin because it will drip off your face and not a paste.

5. Apply mask to your face and neck excluding eye contour area ideally with a mask brush. Apply from the centre of the face outwards. We always work in the direction of lymph flow. Allow to dry, it’s no longer active once dry.

Clarifying Clay Mask Tip: Watch where the clay mask dries first. That’s a good indication that particular area of your face is dehydrated. Are you missing that area with your Day Care? Do you need a richer Day Care product?

6. To remove Clarifying Clay Mask the Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Sponge makes the job quick and easy, but a non white face flannel will do, moistened with the now lukewarm facial steam water. Remove by moistening the mask first, then wiping.

7. Now apply your Cream Mask (Revitalising, Hydrating, Firming or Soothing) including the eye contour area, as an eye mask.

8. Leave on for at least 30 minutes to absorb. I leave mine on for most of the evening. Remove Cream Mask with a warm moist Compress Cloth before bedtime.

9. Apply the contents of a Renewing Night Conditioner Ampoule.

Please note: If you are new to Renewing Night Conditioner ampoules, flick the top to ensure all liquid is in the bottom of the ampoule, then using a towel break off the glass top. Pour 1/2 the contents into the palm of one hand, spread between the palms of the hands and quickly press into the skin and repeat with the balance of the liquid. Apply nothing further to your skin. It’s bedtime.

Note: We do not recommend any heat for a rosacea skin condition – use tepid water for a Compress & Hydrate instead.

Your skin will reward you for the extra effort, it will look radiant, refined and even toned, nourished and pampered. x

Do you really need an eye cream?

Homepage_SLIDESHOW_BeConfidentBeJoyous

Do you really need a specialised eye product?

  • The skin around the eyes is thinner and shows signs of ageing more quickly than other areas of the face
  • It’s also more delicate and vulnerable due to thin skin
  • More prone to allergic reactions
  • Subject to much movement e.g. squinting
  • Under the eyes may be prone to puffiness
  • The eye area doesn’t contain oil glands to keep the skin moist like the rest of your facial skin

So yes, a day time specialised eye product is highly recommended, with ingredients to protect against the environment, and to nourish, nurture, soothe and refresh.

What’s the difference between Dr. Hauschka eye products?

Regenerating Eye Cream to support a more demanding mature skin. Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and lines caused by dryness, reduces the appearance of wrinkle depth, tones the eye area, smoothes and refines the skin and hydrates.

Ingredient focus: Precious borage seed oil has one of the highest amounts of gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) of all the oils. GLA is one type of omega-6 essential fatty acid which also has anti-inflammatory properties.

Daily Hydrating Eye Cream is suitable for all skin conditions and for skin prone to premature wrinkles. Soothing, refreshing, hydrating and rapidly absorbed.

Ingredient focus: Pineapple fruit extract is rich in vitamins and minerals, it smoothes fine lines and wrinkles, refreshes and has anti-irritant and soothing properties.

Screen Shot 2016-08-02 at 2.28.28 PM

Eye Balm is suitable for dry and sensitive skin prone to premature lines and wrinkles. Smooths, moisturises and is highly protective. Calendula helps with under-eye puffiness.

Ingredient focus: Beeswax with it’s high melting point stays where it’s put and is also anti-inflammatory helping to calm and soothe.

Eye Revive refreshes, revitalises and soothes eyes that are tired, strained, puffy or red. A must for irritated screen eyes and post air travel.

Ingredient focus: Eyebright (Euphrasia) for its anti-irritant, astringent and soothing properties.

Please note:  The use of eye creams at night time is likely to result in puffy morning eyes. Use your oil free Night Serum or Regenerating Serum for the eye contour area at night.

Pomegranate

Pomegranates not only taste good, they have a range of health benefits. Anti-fungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties have been ascribed to them. They’re also resistant to drought and can store much moisture and vitality in their fruit.

An age-defying ingredient

  • We process the whole Pomegranate fruit, including the Peel for our products, obtaining a preparation that promotes regeneration of the skin.
  • Pomegranate Peel is an important ingredient because its extract inhibits an enzyme that is responsible for the breakdown of collagen in ageing skin.
  • At the same time, the extract activates an enzyme that’s involved in the production of collagen.
  • Pomegranate Seed Oil contained in the whole-fruit extract stimulates cell division in the keratinocytes, cells which produce the important skin-strengthening protein keratin.

Is your make-up working for your skin too?

Pomegranate extract is a key ingredient in Dr. Hauschka Foundation, so as a treatment Foundation you’re getting superb value. It’s both a sumptuous make-up and a product that’s also integral to your age-defying skin care programme.

Pomegranate is also to be found in Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream and our luxurious Regenerating Body Cream.

Tip: For a particularly dry mature skin, or in winter time, you may like to try Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream as your face cream as well as for neck and décolleté. It’s a richer formulation than Regenerating Day Cream, because there’s less sebaceous glands in the neck and décolleté area.

Dr. Hauschka Regenerating Range supports a maturing skin.

Which Moisturiser is the best choice for you?

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 10.18.45 AM

All our Moisturisers, including Clarifying Day Oil, are highly concentrated, for example Rose Day Cream contains 30 organic or biodynamic Roses! They’re designed to be applied as follows:

  1. Warm around a large pea size amount of Moisturiser (3-4 drops of Clarifying Day Oil) between the palms of the hands to melt the oils and waxes.
  2. Apply using the palms of both hands to skin still moist from Toner which locks in hydration, aids absorption of botanical actives and ensures even and economical application.

Applying our homeopathic knowledge of ‘like treats like’ we recommend an oil for an oily skin. It may seem counter-intuitive however, harsh products just ‘strip’ the skin creating imbalance and the skin produces more oil to compensate whereas Clarifying Day Oil calms and relaxes the skin.

If you get pimples then definitely add Coverstick into your morning regime, to treat and conceal with just the right amount of tea tree and manuka for their anti-bacterial properties, and tapioca starch which absorbs. Amazing product!

If Foundation is too rich for your skin then mix a little Translucent Bronzing Tint with your Clarifying Day Oil.

Please noteClarifying Day Oil may also be used as an Oil ‘serum’ by mixing a drop or two with Rose Day Cream for additional protection against the environment and an anti-oxidant boost for any skin condition.

Screen Shot 2015-10-05 at 1.23.55 pm

Tips

  1. After eye contour application, with the residual Regenerating Eye Cream that’s left on your ring fingers apply around the contour of your lips as boost against lip lines.
  2. Never use eye cream at night, it’s likely to result in puffy morning eyes. Do apply firming and oil-free Regenerating Serum or revitalising and oil-free Night Serum to the eye contour area at night after cleansing and toning.
  3. Use your once or twice weekly Cream Mask treatments around your eye contour area too, as an eye mask. A favourite Mask Blend of ours is to use Regenerating Serum then Hydrating Mask over the top of the Serum and leave to absorb for as long as possible. This is our super nourishing and plumping mask treatment blend. Remove with a warm, moist cloth prior to bedtime.
  4. Always treat your eyes and eye contour area with the utmost care. Remove eye make-up with Soothing Cleansing Milk on a dampened cotton wool pad and use gentle sweeping movements from the inside to the outside corner of your closed eye.
  5. Get regular eye check-ups, and wear your sunnies and a hat.

Mature Skin

Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 12.08.39 pm

Beautiful skin isn’t always healthy – however healthy skin is always beautiful.

Mature Skin: Declining elasticity, wrinkles, an increasing tendency to dryness, possibly with constantly red cheek/nasal region (visible capillaries), thin skin, irregular pigmentation due to menopause, age spots, sun damage.

Natural & Organic Skin Care for Mature Skin
The key to beautiful mature skin is to age with healthy skin.

As we age, our skin needs specific care it may not have previously required. The process of cellular renewal slows, and skin naturally loses elasticity and resilience. Dr. Hauschka’s Regenerating Range supports productive skin renewal, refining skin and energising its regenerative processes for a firmer, smoother, radiant appearance.

  • Noticeably firms and tones
  • Supports the skin’s natural regenerative functions
  • Enhances skin elasticity
  • Balances moisture content, making skin feel smooth, soft, firm and supple
  • Antioxidant-rich red clover, acerola berries and raspberry seed oil protect against free radical damage and support the skin’s natural processes of renewal
  • Also formulated for sensitive skin

Your Essential Day Care

1) Cleanse with our Correct Cleansing and Hydrate and Compress. Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence in your basin water relaxes, Rose Nurturing Bath Essence is an exotic way to begin the day and Lemon Lemongrass Vitalising Bath Essence is energising. Cleansing Cream deep cleanses after the night time activity of the skin, removing impurities without stripping the skin of moisture and protection.

2) Close eyes and mist your skin with Facial Toner then apply 1 pump Regenerating Serum to firm a mature skin, helping to minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while balancing moisture content.

Oil-free Regenerating Serum for day and night use gives ample moisture and a fresh, firm feel. With its formulation of moisture-regulating quince seed extract, isoflavone-rich (also referred to as phytoestrogens), regenerative red clover, vital bryophyllum and clover blossom honey. Regenerating Serum fortifies the skin’s natural functions, regulates moisture and noticeably refines and firms the skin. It also soothes reddened, sensitive skin. The result: a refined and firmer complexion.

3) Warm approximately a rice size amount of Regenerating Eye Cream between your two ring fingers and apply from inner to outer eye contour. A light formulation day time eye care product containing nine plant oils including precious borage seed oil rich in gamma-linolenic acid and many unsaturated fatty acids. Together with moisture rich extract of quince seed, decongestive birch leaves, silica-rich field horsetail and isoflavone-rich red clover to firm and strengthen. Antioxidant protection from cherry fruit and sea buckthorn oil.

4) Moisturise with Regenerating Day Cream, a rich cream with a luxurious composition of vital bryophyllum (kalanchoe), isoflavone-rich and the great regenerator red clover, silica-rich field horsetail, vitamin-rich acerola (cherry) fruits and harmonising rose petals enhances the skin’s tone and elasticity and smoothes wrinkles and lines, leaving the skin looking radiant. Finest plant oils such as precious raspberry seed oil, avocado oil and shea butter provide rich protection all day long. The cream also soothes reddened and sensitive skin.

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 2.17.15 pm

Tip: Add a little Translucent Bronzing Tint and mix with your Regenerating Day Cream prior to application, this then becomes a tinted moisturiser. As we age our skin may become a little pallid, Translucent Bronzing Tint puts uplifting, youthful warm tones back into the skin.

Screen Shot 2015-06-02 at 12.06.56 pm
Plant pic: highly regenerative and isoflavone-rich Red Clover

Regenerating Neck and Décolleté Cream is specifically formulated to replenish, fortify and firm skin for a smoother appearance. A readily absorbed cream that makes the skin feel firmer and refines its structure. Field horsetail with it high silica content and firming action supports the connective tissue of neck and décolleté. Extracts of marshmallow, birch and red clover form a luxurious composition to help the skin retain moisture with exotic argan oil that’s highly compatible with the skin and counteracts skin ageing. This cream is a rich formulation designed for the décolleté and neck which have less sebaceous glands.

Your Essential Night Care

1) Compress and Hydrate then apply Soothing Cleansing Milk which is a light, gentle, effective make-up and eye make-up remover plus evening cleansing product from the dirt and dust your skin picks up during the day.

2) Close eyes and mist Facial Toner directly onto your skin

3) Apply one pump of Regenerating Serum. Dr. Hauschka does not recommend moisturisers at night. Indeed in our experience the use of heavy, occlusive night creams exacerbate a dry skin. Sleeping is not ageing.

The delicate area around the eyes is much thinner than other parts of the body because it does not have subcutaneous fatty tissue, which makes it particularly sensitive and prone to wrinkles. Daily application of eye cream is a must plus use your Cream Mask on the eye contour area as an ‘eye mask’. Never use an eye cream at night, it’s likely to cause puffy eyes in the morning.
